Biomaterials : materials chemistry in a medical context
Séminaire du Dr Thibaud Coradin (LCMCP, UPMC)
The development of biomaterials requires the convergence of multiple expertises at the service of medicine. Chemistry plays a key role in imagining and constructing objects that will induce the adequate response of the body. However, combining functionality and biocompatibility remains a great challenge, as it implies a control of chemical and biological reactivity at multiple dimensional and time scales. Here we will illustrate some current approaches in materials chemistry applied to biomaterial design based on recent projects of the Materials & Biology group of LCMCP, especially in the area of skin wound healing.
